"Detailed Craftsman" best describes Holt Deniger and his piano restoration. We have a Steinway "M", built in 1955, with a rich family history. Some work was done elsewhere twenty years ago, but after daily studio use and a move cross country, the piano was in need of TLC. We happened upon Holt via his website. We conversed on the phone and he scheduled a meeting at his workshop realizing we didn't want to leave our treasure with just anyone. Everything about that initial meeting convinced us that we had found the right guy! His commitment to detail is noteworthy. Holt is skilled at an artisan's level in woodworking, metal plating, action/voicing/string installation, all things Steinway, and is an excellent communicator. He sent regular updates, pictures, and videos as he knew we missed our piano over the six months of restoration. Every detail was covered over and above our expectations. The cabinet refinishing is nothing short of amazing - no sign of former flaws. The piano now plays more beautifully than I ever remember it! It responds exactly as desired to the touch. When the "M" arrived back at our home, Holt was in attendance to hear me play it for the first time. The emotion in the room was proof of his total investment in making sure he had done everything within his power to restore beauty back to our piano. We have nothing but praise for Mr. Deniger.
"One of the best decisions I ever made was to have Holt Deniger rebuild my Steinway piano. I have a Golden Age Steinway O, that needed some extensive rehab. Holt took it all apart, refurbishing/replacing virtually everything. I wish I had made a recording of the sound before and after. You would not believe it! He was professional, on time, on estimate and even gave me a loaner, while waiting on mine to be finished. I could not be happier with the result!"

"Holt Deniger has consistently made my old pianos sound like new. From artisan regulation to hammer work, he is one of the best technicians I have had the pleasure of working with. This is why Holt has been my regular technician since moving back from New York."
THIS IS A SEVERAL DAY LONG SERVICE IN WHICH THE TECHNICIAN ADJUSTS THE TOUCH OF THE PIANO. THIS PIANO SERVICE IS RECOMMENDED BY PIANO MANUFACTURERS EVERY 5 YEARS. IF SOME NOTES ON THE KEYBOARD DO NOT REPEAT, YOU HAVE DIFFICULTY PLAYING SOFT PASSAGES, OR THE KEYBOARD FEELS SLUGGISH AND HEAVY THIS MAY BE THE RIGHT PIANO SERVICE FOR YOU.
IF THE TONE OF YOUR PIANO HAS BECOME HARSH OR TOO BRIGHT IT MAY BE TIME TO CONSIDER REPLACING THE HAMMERS. ALSO, OVER TIME ALL OF THE MECHANICAL COMPONENTS IN A PIANO ACTION WILL WEAR AND NEED REPLACEMENT. SIMPLE PARTS REPLACEMENT CAN GIVE NEW LIFE BACK TO AN INSTRUMENT THAT SEEMS TO BE IN POOR CONDITION.
WE EMPLOY FULL TIME PIANO MOVERS THAT WE HAVE CROSS TRAINED IN BASIC PIANO SERVICE. THAT MEANS THAT WHEN WE SEND OUR PIANO MOVERS THEY WILL HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE TO PUT YOUR PIANO BACK TOGETHER CORRECTLY AND FIX MINOR ISSUES SUCH AS THE PEDAL IS STUCK OR THE CABINET PARTS ARE ON WRONG.
"Holt transformed my new Steinway D in a remarkably short time into a truly great instrument. He stands out as the most outstanding master technician-tuner I have encountered in 40+ years as a touring artist and Steinway owner. If you are searching for a great craftsman and tuner, Holt Deniger is my first choice. I recommend him without reservation."
THIS IS A GOOD CHOICE IF YOUR PIANO IS IN GOOD CONDITION BUT YOU FEEL THAT THE TOUCH OR TONE HAS SLIGHTLY DIMINISHED. THE TECHNICIAN CAN MAKE SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENTS WITH A HALF OR FULL DAY SERVICE.
Holt performed a full action regulation, hammer voicing, and tune on my Yamaha C7 (in other words, a complete maintenance overhaul). I couldn't be any happier with the results.
The action is now incredibly even, and with the added voicing, it's remarkable to experience the piano letting you achieve a broad, controlled and dynamic ppp-p range.
Holt's attention to detail was admirable. He was constantly asking for my feedback and input, which allowed him to tailor the piano's tone and action to my personal preferences.
The piano now sings like new. And the best part about that is that it just makes you want to practice even more.
I would highly recommend Holt for any of your keyboard maintenance needs. I personally guarantee that you will not be disappointed, rather, just as ecstatic as I am with the results.
